Now you should be able to click on the "Download w/ IAFM" links on the details pages. Let me know if you're still having trouble.

You're most welcome for the help :) Thanks for helping work out kinks with the new program.

Can you point me to the link that isn't working for you? Make sure you are not clicking the "Run now" link on the IAFM page, rather you are clicking "Download w/ IAFM". What operating system and browser are you using?

When you click the link the IAFM program comes up, but nothing happens? Can you please close the program, click the link again, wait for a few seconds (perhaps 30 or so), and then go to the Help menu, Debug, and click "Send Bug Report" and I'll get an email with all sorts of useful information.

In safari on the mac, the downloads as a file ending in .php and stops. you might want to work on the filenames and mime types for non-pc users.

Another Mac user told me that he had trouble with Safari (couldn't get the program to launch). One thing you can try is to click on the "Run now" link from the IAFM page. I'd appreciate knowing if that one works for you.

So Safari actually downloads the download.php file? Can you tell what is in side? Does this happen for all media types? I really want to get this working for Mac users and for users of all browsers, but have no access to a Mac so your troubleshooting is really appreciated.

it started up fine when I ran it from IE on the mac.

yes, the run-now button works in safari.
